Pa. Abortion Doctor Gets Third Life Sentence

Abortion Protestor SC Pa. abortion doctor gets third life sentence

PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia abortion doctor was sentenced Wednesday to a third life term for killing an aborted baby that he described as so big it could “walk to the bus.”

Dr. Kermit Gosnell was convicted this week of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies born alive, then stabbed with scissors. He was given two life sentences Tuesday in a deal with prosecutors that spared him a potential death sentence, and the third sentence was handed down Wednesday.

Gosnell was also sentenced to 2 ½ to five years in prison for the 2009 overdose death of a patient. The sentences are consecutive, meaning Gosnell, 72, will spend the rest of his life in prison.

The case has made Gosnell a flashpoint in the nation’s bitter debate over legalized abortion.

Prosecutors argued that Gosnell savagely killed late-term babies born alive by severing their spines, and taught several staff members the technique. Nine former clinic workers were convicted in the case, and four others pleaded guilty to murder.

  1. Thay should have taken him out and hung him upside down and cut his neck and do the same thing he did to those little angels I hope he has a horable death and then when he faces god he will be judged for what he done

      Before you cut his neck shove a coat hangar up his ass and pull his guts out like some backroom abortions are performed.

    HE SHOULD RECIEVE NO MORE MERCY THAN WHAT HE AFFORDED THE HELPLESS BABIES WERE SHOWN BY HIM.

    I'm actually surprised that he was convicted– the delay in the verdict seemed to be a means by which the jury would "hang" on the murder charges, the State would refuse to try him again, and he would virtually walk out of jail free. Considering the pro-abortion lobby in this country, life in prison is the best of all possible worlds. Let's hope he lives a LONG TIME so that he can SUFFER A LONG TIME!!!!! (But knowing the pro-death lobby, somebody will slip him a drug which will kill him quickly because these folks would literally "eat their young"– as does abortion, if you think about it….)

    BTW, hasn't Gosnell been BARRED from the practice of medicine? If not, then THIS would be more of a travesty than I thought. IF he has, why are we still calling him "Dr." Gosnell (as opposed to FORMER Dr. Gosnell)???????
